Archived Projects

AWE - Protection Replacements. Modification of circuit design and interface engineering associated with the replacement of obsolete Translay protection and metering equipment at their Burghfield works. Cereal Partners - Additional Generation. At the Brombrough and Staverton plants the existing 11kV switchboards required extending to accommodate the additional generation being produced at these sites.Included was full circuit design and interface engineering for the metering, G59 protection, 11kV switchgear panels and interface/protection wall boxes. Unilever - Generation Plant. To accommodate new generation at the Wirral plant, the existing 11kV switchboards required to be modified to accommodate the additional generation circuit and changes to circuit configurations. Included was full circuit design and interface engineering for the 11kV switchgear panel modifications and interface to the 11kV Generator control board. Magnox -Remote Control. Full circuit design and interface engineering associated with requirement at the plant to provide some physical separation between the operator and the 11kV switchboard. For this purposes a remote control panel was designed and interfaced with the 11kV VCB’s, this panel also accommodated local alarm annunciator, which provided a grouped alarm to the central control room. Also included was the management of the panel build. Tata Steel- Protection Replacements. Modification to the existing circuit design and interface engineering associated with the 11kV switchboard at theirShotton plant with the removal of obsolete relays and replacing with modern equivalents and re-organisation of circuits connected to the 11kV switchboard. Alcan/SSE- Protection Replacement. To establish the 33kV cable connections to the Alcan plant from SSE Fort William 33kV substation, the requirement was needed to reconfigure the circuits at Fort William and this required existing circuit designs and interface engineering to be modified and to provide drawings highlighting to show the required site modifications. Also included was the introduction of an operational intertripping and direction blocking schemes required to be developed to meet the running arrangements at Alcan and Fort William. Magnox - Switchboard Extension. Full circuit design and interface engineering associated with the decommissioning at Dungeness with the introduction of a duplicate control panel in the central control room. Also in addition to this the 6.6kV switchboard was extended to 10 circuits, as a consequence the existing standby control/mimic panel was developed and modified to include all controls, indications and alarms for these new circuits.
